Wearable Intelligence raises $8 million to bring Google Glass into the workplace
Wearable Intelligence is one of several startups working to apply wearable technologies like Google Glass to enterprise markets, such as healthcare and energy. Now it has raised around $8 million in new venture capital funding, according to a regulatory filing.
Lightspeed Venture Partners led the round, with partner Barry Eggers becoming the third member of Wearable Intelligence’s board of directors (joining co-founders Yan-David Erlich and Ryan Junee). The San Francisco-based company previously raised seed funding from such firms as Andreessen Horowitz, First Round Capital, Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Initialized Capital and Subtraction Capital.
Wearable Intelligence currently has four products in market, each of which is based on a modified version of Google Glass (in some cases both the hardware and software). They include Director, which provides healthcare clinicians and energy field workers with a hands-free workflow system for performing standardized checklists and procedures, and Mentor, which provides real-time data alerts like a patient’s vital signs for surgeons or telemetric data for oil-rig operators.
Fortune has reached out to both the company and Lightspeed, and will update this post if we hear back.
